                       How does a visitor to Ontario obtain a Disabled Person Parking Permit?

                            These permits ensure that people with disabilities have a unique entitlement to
                            designated parking throughout Ontario (specific parking privileges vary depending on
                            the municipality or parking lot owner). The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) issues
                            disabled person parking permits to out-of-province visitors for a maximum of six

                            You may apply for a disabled person parking permit if you have a physical disability
                            that prevents you from walking unassisted for long distances. In most cases, a visitor
                            may obtain a permit if they prove that they hold a currently valid permit, number
                            plates, marker or device, bearing the international symbol for access for the disabled,
                            issued by the visitor's home jurisdiction, or if they prove that they are from another
                            jurisdiction and are disabled.

                            You may apply for a disabled person parking permit even if you do not own a car or
                            have a driver's licence. These permits are issued to individuals, not vehicles. A
                            "portable permit" issued to disabled individuals ensures their ease of access from any
                            vehicle at any time.

                            Applications for disabled person parking permits may be obtained at any Driver and
                            Vehicle Licence Office in Ontario. You can also obtain permit applications by
                            contacting MTO INFO, toll-free, at 1-800-268-4686. Upon receiving the
                            application, complete section one, have a doctor complete section two, and mail it to
                            MTO, P.O. Box 9200, Kingston, Ontario, K7L 5K4. The application form can also
                            be returned to any Driver and Vehicle Licence office.

                            There is no charge for disabled person parking permits. MTO is doing all it can to
                            promote the mobility and equality of people with disabilities throughout Ontario.

Thank You,
